Lake of golden light - swan silhouette by 

Lake of golden light – swan silhouette at sunset on a lake of golden light.
CANON 50 D 17 – 85MM LENS
I was watching the sunset on this beautiful lake and this swan swam right up to me from across the far side of the lake and then swam into the middle of the sunset reflections and bathed in the last ray of the day, as they love to do – It was a classical
‘animal magic’ moment.
When I took this shot, (a day ago) the light was crystal clear, sharp and a very crisp sunny winter’s day – I knew it had been special when after the sun set, a very beautiful and very large full moon appeared and hovered just above the top of the trees, beaming brightly in the night sky.
